There are a lot of Nuthatch around the woods at the moment, it’s a wonderful time of year to see them walking up and down the tree trunks. It is also a really good time of year to listen to the tiny Goldcrest as it flits around the tree canopy.
Part of our plan for Staveley Woodlands is to plant a woodland corridor between Craggy Wood and Dorothy Farrer’s Spring Wood. I kicked off September with a presentation in Staveley on how to gather local seeds and grow them on, in the hope that local people will help us grow the many local trees needed for the woodland corridor.
This event was well attended, with everyone leaving with lots of information and a readiness to get out there and start growing. With everyone involved we will soon have a tree nursery full of local trees to plant out at Staveley Woodlands.
